Day Out With Thomas is a family event that offers children and their grownups the opportunity to ride with classic storybook friend Thomas the Tank Engine. Parents, grandparents and siblings join their aspiring engineers in the fun. The Day Out With Thomas experience will engineer miles of smiles for the whole family and introduce a new generation to the timeless excitement of railroading.
There is so much to do you can spend the whole day! Enjoy our two inflatables: a 40-foot inflatable obstacle course and an inflatable MOO Cow!
